Issue 236 is the two hundred and thirty-sixth edition of Sonic the Comic and the 13th regular edition of Sonic the Comic Online. Released on the 28th of August 2005, the comic contained three new stories and 4 pin-ups.



Sonic the Hedgehog

The Betrayal of Mobius is a complete Sonic the Hedgehog story and part of the Sonic Adventure 2 story arc. Written by Ed Reynolds, drawn by Stephen Davis and lettered by Charles Ellis, the story shows Sonic visiting the homeworld of the Drakon Empire. The Drakons developed Chaos energy, which is what is threatening to destroy Mobius, so Sonic needs the Drakons' help. For his troubles, Sonic is given a Chaos Tap but it seems to all be part of the Drakons' plans for a future invasion of Mobius.


Journey to the Crossroads is a 3-part story, concluding this issue, which is STC-O's first visit to the Nameless Zone. Written by Reynolds, drawn by Adamis and lettered by Mike Corker, Tails is busy trying to stop Morain from destroying the new train line over the vortex. The pair are confronted by Errol Blackthorn and Sergeant Gork, but Morain escapes, setting the bag of dynamite alight. Tails gets rid of it in time, but he is left in the middle of an ongoing battle between the foxes of the Nameless Zone.

Sonic's World

Unusual Suspect is the first in a three-part series starring Shortfuse the Cybernik and Tekno the Canary. Written by Corker, drawn by Chris G and lettered by Ellis, the story follows the events of what seems to be Shortfuse robbing a bank. Tekno isn't convinced, but video evidence shows otherwise and she is forced to lock him in her workshop. Tekno heads out to prove Shorty's innocence, whilst the squirrel is left to wonder why he's a prisoner.


The Data Zone covered the recent history of all major and supporting characters in this issue's three stories. The story so far read: "The Syndicate are winning. They have the Chaos Emeralds in their possession, they are secure on-board their mighty Death Carrier, and they are preparing to obliterate Mobius by igniting its residual Chaos Energy. Sonic may have to resort to desperate measures…"

The Pin-up section included a summer poster of the major heroes (Adamis), the front cover image of Shortfuse (Orin), an image from an earlier Sonic story of The Syndicate (Zak Simmonds-Hurn) and the latest model of Megadroid (Corker).

The Control Zone also contained a link to the Comics Nation website.
